THE DOG STUDIO
Canine Hydrotherapy and Dog Grooming
WELCOME TO THE DOG STUDIO
The premier dog therapy centre on the outskirts of Swindon
THE DOG STUDIO is an established, family owned facility, devoted to canine exercise, performance and conditioning.
We are committed to working with you and your Vet to ensure the best possible treatment to help your pets enjoy a full and active life, whether they are recovering from surgery, injury, illness or maybe just needing to keep fit or lose a little weight.
We work beyond UK regulations and codes of practice to ensure we provide the highest quality service to dog owners. By developing and implementing practices and procedures above industry standards, Veterinary Surgeons, Pet insurance companies and most importantly pet owners can be confident the treatment received at THE DOG STUDIO is the very best available.
Hydrotherapy can be used to treat conditions such as:
- Pre/Post-operative conditions
- Rehabilitation (tendon, muscle, spinal and joint injuries)
- Post Stroke
- Pain management
- Arthritis / Hip Dysplasia
- Growth related problems
- Geriatric mobilisation
- Improving staying ability in track and field dogs
Hydrotherapy is not an alternative to veterinary medicine and care. We will not diagnose or prescribe for any condition. We recommend that clients having any concerns about the health of their animal consult their primary care Veterinarian.
A well planned course of hydrotherapy
treatment encourages joint movement in non-weight bearing conditions, improving muscle tone, promoting tendon repair without imposing undue stress on damaged tissues and improving cardiovascular
stamina. Almost every muscle of the anatomy is exercised whilst avoiding impact to joints and bones.
Hydrotherapy can be used for the treatment and rehabilitation of Arthritis, orthopaedic conditions, muscle, ligament and many other types of injury. It can also help with general convalescence, obesity and fitness training. It is ideal for building muscle both prior to an operation and after the stitches have been removed and skin healed. Where walking is too painful and strenuous, hydrotherapy swimming allows the "working out" and strengthening of muscles while avoiding potentially damaging concussion shocks of footfalls on hard surfaces. While these stresses are necessary to maintain healthy, strong bone, if severe, or repetitive, the shock waves can actually damage or weaken limbs, particularly an arthritic joint or one recovering from an injury or surgery.
Hydrostatic pressure applied by the water assists in reducing swelling by causing excess body fluid movement away from the affected area. This is enhanced when exercising the limb to enhance circulation. Pressure on the chest makes breathing more difficult, resulting in the lungs and heart working harder. This leads to an improvement to the respiratory and cardio-vascular system.
If all this sounds like hard work - it is - that's the idea! For a dog, a 5 minute structured swim program is equivalent to about a 5 mile run, but the natural buoyancy of the water and the protection from sudden twists and falls makes hydrotherapy a safe and effective and enjoyable form of exercise.
